I assume that Nigel's a metaphor for an English stock broker.
Sadly I fear Nigel is someone who brawls in Peig in the OP 's dangerously deluded mind.

I'd suggest the OP get down to his leaving cert Irish study and take a break from posting 1,973,127 threads on the topic.

The MOD'S should close the thread.

There wont be any Senior Executives moving to Dublin ...its purely back office stuff..and even then were not getting much so far
And has been covered in countless threads already ...
Including one that links to the Central bank confirms no approaches for new Banking Licences

On any other subject this thread would be zoo'ed .....but the Mod seem to allow any sort of shrill hysterical nonsense on the subject of Brexit

Now back to the P.ie Brexit hysterics :roll:
I think its fair to say that, when it comes to analysis (rather than invective) concerning Brexit specifically, and financial services generally, you are more than a little out of your depth.

There will be no new banking licenses issued in Dublin arising from Brexit, many of the entities that will shift some operations to Dublin already have banking licences.

According to the Central Bank's public register of Credit Institutions there are 467 credit institutions operating in Ireland. Crucially, only 19 of those are directly authorised by the CBI, the rest are branches of credit institutions authorised in other EU/EEA states.

As we have found to our cost, being the lead supervisor of a bank that fails is an expensive business. The Irish banking crisis nearly sank the nation, and the domestic Irish banking sector is small by international standards. We simply couldn't present ourselves as a credible jurisdiction for the headquarters of leviathan banks, our Exchequer simply couldn't cope with a failure.

We can however offer an attractive proposition for the relocation of functions currently undertaken in London so long as ultimate responsibility for the resolution of these banks, should they fail, rests with the prudential supervisors & exchequers in their home countries.

The fact that there are no new banking licences is therefore misleading - look instead for evidence of the ramping up of activities within existing branches.

Look also at other sectors, especially insurance and asset management. From an Irish perspective these are vastly less risky propositions, and Dublin has a well established reputation in these fields

Would they not have to learn German in Frankfurt?
Yeah but at least there the children could go out on the streets and hear German spoken in Frankfurt. In fact, a knowledge of German would most likely be of great benefit to them in Frankfurt.

How many anti-Irish threads is one person allowed to start?

Can't they all be merged together in one giant thread of shíte?

Nigel will live in Louth, gets the train to town for work, sends his kids north for education cos there'll be no issues with the border at all, at all, and it'll all be grand. It wouldn't be Irish I'd be worried about for Nigel, it'd be trying to dechiper the Louth accent ;)

Weird thread. Like they could move to Iceland and have to learn an equally obscure language.

Upper class British people don't HAVE children as we understand it. They have small people who's presence they tolerate for a number of summers until they can be wholesale shipped off to Switzerland. Then a few years later you'll have to secure employment for them in your field. They don't actually care for children or indeed interact with them on any meaningful level.

The biggest problem with Dublin as a Brexit location, the one which made the papers anyway, is that the amount of Michelin star restaurants could be counted on two hands. That is the level of psychopathy you are dealing with here. A spice bag in Ballyfermot won't do them, you see.

I suspect the idea of the OP is that London would not longer be an option due to Brexit - hence the swarm of relocating bankers fretting about their yet to be born kids having to learn Irish at some point years down the road

CEO - " Hey Nige - I want you to head up the Dublin office - 300k/year + bonus and a paid for rental in D4"
Nige - "No can do , I might have kids who will be forced to learn Irish"
Ireland is a World leader in Multi national investment. We have about a quarter of the world wide market in this. Why? I mean if the eductational system is so "bad" and so on. Why have for example:
Pfizer, Google, Apple, Microsoft, Intel, Facebook, Amazon, Ebay all got huge offices and hub's here?

Inward Investment. UK banks looking at Frankfurt, Paris, Brussels, or even to Dublin and the Financial services centre. This could represent a massive boon to the economy of whichever cities will be the winners.

When looking at a new city to relocate, we can be confident that Bankers look at a number of factors. These could include :

- Local language
- Skills levels of local population
- quality childcare and schooling provision
- Tax regime
- Airport and other transport infrastructure
- and no doubt dozens of other factors.

Moving country is a big deal. Not to be undertaken lightly. And a massive consideration will be that your kids will get a culture-stamp' from the local environs. Move to Paris and they will have English and French - two great world languages. Similar for Frankfurt, Madrid, or Rome. But what if UK bankers come to these shores ? Nigel and Sharon have kids here, and these kids are not only forced to learn Irish, but they are expected to reach a good level of Irish or they will be barred from a huge proportion of University places in the locale. This gives rise to a number of questions :

- How do British parents help their kids with their irish homework ?

- Are UK born parents allowed to get their irish-born kids off learning irish ?

- What about other foreign born nationals living ( and giving birth to kids) in ireland ? Think about the kids of the Polish, Hungarians etc who are also expected to learn and thrive in the native language that existed on these shores three or four hundred years ago ? Must the kids of Poles, Syrians, and Romanians all be forced to learn irish ?

- Surely the defence ''irish is our culture and we need to protect it'' doesnt wash with people from different cultures ?

- If the policymakers at these international banks was aware of this, would they choose Frankfurt instead ?

Most of them seem to know half a dozen languages and it doesn't take a bar out of them.

You should learn something from this.

Ceapaim go bhfuil tú ag caint ráiméis. Why did Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft move their European HQ here? If it is such a difficult place?

Dublin is Europe
Oh its not a rumour -

Jason, who is in fifth year at school, was taken to Tallaght Garda Station to be quizzed over the demonstration which locked Joan Burton in her car for hours. He was released just after 12.30pm this afternoon, and a file has been sent to the DPP.


"For the police to bang down the door at 7.10am this morning is outrageous.

Apple were squirreling away their profits in Ireland long before that, and the others have been here quite a while as well.

Ireland as such is not bad, it is the corrupt establishment that just makes it appear so.

What has this got to do with anything? Brexit business is coming from the UK, a country where the lower classes a country where the lower classes are more/less illiterate in their native language.

Read the post I was responding to and you might understand, but then again, probably not.

UK is more corrupt, when you consider the volume of money/favours exchanging hands and the rigidity of the class system.
